Holme Shay/Tong BD4

Ryecroft Hall
SE 2030 60/107 4.9.52


Fine mid C17 hall of coursed gritstone on a rectangular plan with stone slate roof,
saddlestones, kneelers, 3 chimney stacks on ridge. The south entrance front has
5-light chamfered mullion windows, some retaining diamond leaded glazing. The
principal feature of the elevation is the large hall window to the left of the
porch: mullioned and transomed in 2 groups of 4 double lights, the small square
panes are leaded with simple tracery to the top of the upper row of lights. A
moulded weathered string between storeys forms a drip mould over the ground floor
windows and is carried up over the 1½ storey hall window. The porch was probably
gabled, with the string carried over, but now has weathered flat coping. Chamfered
doorway with slightly cambered head. Large lintel inscribed N over C I 1669
(Christopher and Isabel Nettleton). The interior has undergone some modernisation
but the hall has the feature of a gallery with turned balusters now running around
2 sides at first floor level, the third side has had its floor cut through to allow
for staircase. Very wide fireplace with flanking bearded head posts supporting
massive chamfered bressumer which is arched to allow for formerly enclosed passage
door at one end. Grooved panel partition butting stop chamfered beam. In the kitchen
to the north side is a massive wall post: the 1665 date must therefore refer to a
rebuild/recasing of an earlier timber-framed house.
